Dr. A Show 51: Dr. Val Jones

BlogTalkRadio Listen Live

Thursday, October 9th, 2008 at 9pm Eastern Time

In a Doctor Anonymous Show exclusive, our guest will be Dr. Val Jones (see video post above). Val even "tweeted" along the lines of "Doctor Anonymous has the scoop." Rumors have been circling for weeks asking this question - "What is Dr. Val going to do next?" On show 51, she will answer that question. (Can I hype this up any more? hehe).

In addition to this, we'll talk about Dr. Val being the first homeless blogger of the medical blogosphere, er, new media medicine. (HA!). We'll also talk about "Grand Rounds" of which she is now an integral part. How about conferences? We'll talk about the Health 2.0 conference which will be in San Francisco later this month, and BlogWorld Expo 2008 (and 2009).

Following our conversation, I will be happy to announce that the show (and my blog) will be featured in a major medical website next month. Which one? Well, you will just have to tune in live to find out. I'm also going to share some updated information regarding the poll being taken by Emergiblog about the medblogger track at BlogWorldExpo 2009.

Finally, I want to share with all of you a recent appearance on one of my favorite blogtalkradio shows (Annie and Burl Live!). They made this parody song about me, and I think it's very funny. So you can't miss that!

If you do listen live, you can even take part in the chat room. It is truly "The show within the show." You can even call in and say hello. A great opportunity to interact with medbloggers you've only read about. And, you will be able to see me on the live webcam during the show! See you tonight!

For first time Blog Talk Radio listeners:
*Although it is not required to listen to the show, I encourage you to register on the BlogTalkRadio site prior to the show. I think it will make the process easier.

*To get to my show site, click here. As show time gets closer, keep hitting "refresh" on your browser until you see the "Click to Listen" button. Then, of course, press the "Click to Listen" button.

*You can also participate in the live chat room before, during, and after the show. Look for the "Chat Available" button in the upper right hand corner of the page. If you are registered with the BTR site, your registered name and picture will appear in the chat room.

*You can also call into the show. The number is on my show site. I'll start taking calls about halfway into the show. There is also a "Click To Talk" feature where you do not need a phone to call into the show - only a microphone headset. Hope these tips are helpful!
